How Many Quarts?

Ok, so I have a few questions for ya'll. One, I already know what kinda oil I'm gonna use, but how many quarts does it take? Two, what kind of oil filters do ya'll use and where do you get them? Three, I'm also changing the tranny (manual-G56) fluid and I don't know what type of fluid to use. Four, does the G56 have a tranny filter or not? If so, what do ya'll use and where do you get them? Sorry there's so many questions, but I'm new to Cummins and the 6.7.

The factory service manual calls for 12 quarts (3 gallons) of SAE 15W-40 API CJ-4 Certified oil that meets CES 20081 Standards.

The OEM oil filter p/n is 5083285AA. WIX p/n 57620, FRAM 3976A, STP S3976, Mobil One M-403, K&N HP-4003.

The G56 calls for 5.9 L ( 6.2qt ) Mopar ATF +4 Transmission Fluid, and there is not a filter for the G56. To fill the transmission, remove the fill plug on the right side of the transmission, and simply fill the transmission even with the bottom of the fill hole.

Ok, I was going to run Rotella T 15W-40. The OEM oil filter is FleetGuard? I guess the only place I can get the OEM filter is at the dealer right? Cause I'd rather not use any of the other ones. The only question I really have now is there a tranny fluid that meets those specs that I can buy at Wal-Mart? I appreciate your help though.

Honestly, you aren't going to have a problem using a non-OEM oil filter...butI wouldn't ever use ANYTHING other than Mopar fluid in the transmission.

Ok, well I guess I will be going up to the Dodge dealership to get the tranny fluid and since I'm there I might as well use their oil filter and then stop by Wal-Mart to get some oil. Thank you for your help.

Do you live inside a city? If so, you may have a Cummins service center and you can pick up a Fleetguard Stratapore #LF16035. That's a better filter than the Mopar filter and is probably the #1 selling filter for the Dodge.

Baldwin BT7349 is less than $7 at Fleet Pride. I picked up one the other day.

I am running Rotella T 15W-40 as well. I've been using a Fram filter. Get 3 one gallon jugs and you are good to go.

What is cool is I found a funnel that has the same threads as the oil cap. The funnel had a tube you screwed on to get it into tight spaces.. but I unscrewed it and found the funnel part fits perfect!

I noticed that the oil was BLACK. Not golden like I am used to with gas engines. I take it that is 'normal'.

Well, I can't say I'm a city boy, I live out in the country. I appreciate your guy's input. Ya'll are very helpful.

All of my buddies use Rotella. It's just what I've always been around and never had a problem and ran it in all 3 diesel trucks I've had. By the way, that's pretty awesome. I have to use two hands to pour my oil.

I have used only Mobil Delvac, Rotella, or Delo 400 oils. Usually either of the 3 is $10 a gallon somewhere. As for the filter, only Fleetguard or Baldwin.

I would get a Fumuto Valve to control the oil change mess.

From what I understand, the ATF+4 spec is a strict License. So, any licensed ATF+4 should work. I have used several of these from the list with no issues.

Advance Auto Parts ATF+4®
Carquest ATF+4®
Castrol ATF+4®
Chevron ATF+4®
Citgo Transgard ATF+4®
Coastal ATF+4®
Formula Shell ATF+4®
Great Wall ATF+4®
Havoline ATF+4®
MAG 1 ATF+4®
Mobil ATF+4®
Mobil Super ATF+4®
Mopar ATF+4®
MotoMaster ATF+4®
NAPA ATF+4®
Northland ATF+4®
O’Reilly ATF+4®
Parts Master ATF+4®
Parts Plus ATF+4®
Pennzoil ATF+4®
Petro-Canada ATF+4®
Quaker State ATF+4®
Ravenol ATF+4®
Sinopec ATF+4®
Super Tech ATF+4®
Texamatic DC ATF+4®
Ultramax ATF+4®
Valvoline ATF+4®

Yeah, unfortunately mine was black as night only after about 3500 miles... sad I know. Delete it as in take out the pipe and block it off right?
